Fishing Rule Change in Mill Creek MetroParks

The Board of Park Commissioners approved a fishing rule change at the July 8, 2019 board meeting. The new rule now states fishing in Park District waters is permitted in accordance with Ohio Division of Wildlife regulations from March 1st through November 30th of each calendar year. Fishing is permitted in all creeks, streams, lakes and ponds unless otherwise prohibited by the Park District.

Under the previous rule, fishing was permitted only in waters south of Lake Newport Dam, south of Lake Glacier Dam to the Lake Cohasset Dam, and Yellow Creek, and at other facilities with special permission.
